Why I Love This Recipe

On October 9th, 2012, Tropical Foods had its Flavors of the Fall Recipe Contest with the culinary students at the Charlotte Campus of Johnson & Wales University. This recipe, “Oh My! Pumpkin Pie!” Macarons, was created by Kelcey Fleagle

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup Tropical Food’s Diet Delight® Snack Mix, separated

1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 large egg whites, room temperature
Pinch of cream of tartar
¼ cup superfine sugar
½ tbsp. pumpkin pie spice

¼ cup pumpkin purée
¼ cup cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp. orange juice
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tbsp. butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Separate nuts from raisins in Tropical Food’s Diet Delight®. Use a food processor to grind nuts to a powder, but do not let it grind to a butter. Sift the nut flour with confectioners’ sugar and pumpkin pie spice into a small bowl.

In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until foamy; add cream of tartar and superfine sugar. Whip to a stiff peak.

Sift nut flour over egg mixture and fold together. Scrape batter into a piping bag with round tip sized for desired macaron size. Pipe out identical rounds of batter and let sit until a light skin is formed.

Lower oven to 325 degrees and bake macarons for 10 minutes, rotating halfway between.

Let cool for 5 minutes, and then fill. To make filling, place raisins from Diet Delight® into a food processor and process until chopped.

Add the remaining filling ingredients and process until well blended.

Scrape into a bag and pipe a small amount sandwiched between two macarons.
